The war campaign continues, after the conquest of Sweden and France yesterday Belgium surrendered. The Black Knight spent 2 days in Brussels to discuss with the European Transport Network Agency (Ten-t) about a new project of Motorways of the Seas between Italy and France. What a pity, the invincible warrior could not run through the city because the next morning he woke up late after a night at the restaurant and in a typical local with the french collegues. One italian (the Black Knight) and 5 french talking of rugby, food and ...yes... work!!!!
All these trips don't allow the Black Knight to follow an appropriate program of training. It is difficult to run abroad after a day of meetings and formal lunches and dinners. When I am back home I need to rest one day after hours of flights and queues at the airport.(The Grand Place)
However the last week I made a couple of good workouts, both tempo runs, 10,6 km and 16,9 km. The pace is again slow 5'40"/km but the recover is almost complete. In the pool the Black Knight had a terrible fight. He was swimming very fast, trying to finish 1500 metres in 35' when 2 persons entered into his lane 10 minutes before their turn (a relaxing aquagym) and this is not correct! Not only, they began to swim slowly and with a no correct style disturbing my training. I didn't say anything until the moment I was hit by a hand on my face. In that moment I remembered to be the Black Knight and I screamed: "Don't piss off the persons who are swimming. You must not enter 10 minutes before and having a bath instead of swimming"!!!!Few minutes later I apoligized but I was very very angry and my face hurted. On sunday the Black Knight will go to China..
